Oklahoma Ex-Marine Sparks Nationwide Manhunt…(We Have Obama’s “Lone Wolf”?)
DUNCAN, Oklahoma — An ex-marine and Oklahoma militia man sparks a nationwide manhunt. Law enforcement leaders say they’re afraid he is heavily armed and will do something drastic.
Stephens County Sheriff Wayne McKinney says Charles Dyer didn’t show up for court Monday morning on charges he raped a 7-year-old family member.
But Dyer’s family says he is a constitutional patriot that’s been hounded by the government and is now left with few options.
Online, Charles Dyer is known as July 4 Patriot. Thousands view his videos and anti-government messages.
Sheriff McKinney says in the past, Dyer and his followers have threatened him and other law enforcement, and it’s that history that has him concerned.
“Desperate people do desperate things,” Sheriff McKinney said.
Dyer’s home burned to the ground on Friday. An acquaintance of Dyer has been arrested for arson. The sheriff says Dyer’s firearms were taken from the property.
“We’re sure he’s going to be armed,” said Sheriff McKinney. “There’s no doubt about that,”
